Weald Bethel walking trails, Cherryfield


  • Preserve Size: 60 acres
  • Trail Mileage: ~1.8 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Sights: Narragaugus River

The best way to access the town trail system is probably from the Weald Bethel Community Center, where trails head off in a couple directions. By far the most pleasant trail here is the River Trail, which follows the Narragaugus River for about half a mile, and which on a hot summer day stays fairly cool.

The rest of the paths make their way around the 60 acres, past some rope courses used by Edge, and by a lean-to for campers. You can also access the trail from a boat launch close to town, just 900 feet or so from downtown on Route 1 going south. The trails are more or less blazed, and the trail system includes a few trail signs.

Directions: The center is located at 7 Weald Bethel Lane, Cherryfield. From downtown Cherryfield, traveling along Route 1, the center is about half a mile on your left. You’ll see signs for the trails on the left side of the center if you’re facing it, and behind it.


Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
